Today, on December 21, 2012, the 13th baktun in the famous Mayan calendar is over, but we are still here and the world has not ended, contrary to all the fuss around the doomsday prophecies.
It can really be called one of the most popular disaster scenarios of all time since millions of people around the world have talked about the so-called Mayan prophecy either in their jokes or on serious. Some have even hidden in special doomsday bunkers and have prepared for all kinds of natural disasters, even for a UFO invasion!
So, now we can tell with certainty that December 21, 2012, is not the last day of the world, even now when the Mayan calendar is over. But there is no reason for fans of eschatological theories to be disappointed – there are other dates of the supposed destruction of the world in 2013.
Possible doomsday scenarios beyond 2012
The first one is “scheduled” already for January 2013. In particular, this version is supported by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Moreover, some researchers believe that the correct date for the end of the world predicted by the Maya is in January 2013. Specifically, some authors expect a global cataclysm on January 11, 2013.
The second “dangerous” date is in May 2013. This theory claims that there will be a reversal of the Earth’s poles.
As stated by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in May 2013, a solar maximum will be observed. It means that the Sun will be at its maximum point of the 11-year circle it makes. The impact of such strong solar activity on our planet may be devastating…
Anyway, wait and see. The Mayan calendar is over and soon, everyone will forget about the Mayan prophecy and all the fuss around it. But be sure that some other predictions and prophecies will come to the surface, as they always do.
It seems that we humans are very much into creepy doomsday theories after all!
